West Seattle whales: Sighting this morning

Out of the WSB inbox, from Kevin:

I was running this morning and saw a whale just west of Don Armeni park. It was headed westward, slowly. The whale was young/small, but definitely a whale, not a porpoise or something. It was big, just seemingly small for a whale by my estimation. If I had to hazard a guess, 15-20′ long??

Anyhow, wanted to report it given the story last month of the whale off Vashon. The whale spouted, and I watched its back crest out of the water as it surfaced and went back down. Time was 5:20 am.

Reminder: If you see a marine mammal you think is in trouble – be sure to notify the local marine-mammal stranding network, Seal Sitters MMSN, at 206-905-SEAL.

    I swear the whales know when I am no where near a place to see them. I have been out of work for a month… nothing keeping me from heading to the water to see them… I start a new job, and now they are stopping by? Its a conspiracy !…lol

Sorry, comment time is over.
